The CWC urges you to call or write Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke in support of the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument and the 26 other national monuments that are at risk, after he placed them under review in April. As a result, congressional action could lead to reductions in the size of these monuments, or elimination of them.
One of the Trump administration's arguments for initiating the review is that community participation in the process of creating these monuments was lacking. We need to demonstrate that this was not the case and that the monument meets vital needs in our region.
The deadline for public comment is July 10, and your input can make a difference. See the full story for details about CWC advocacy and how to get involved. more >
